Samsung Good Lock QuickStar

You don’t need to download every Good Lock module to get the most out of the software as some are even more beneficial than others. Here are the top 3 Good Lock modules that we consider to be absolutely necessary on Samsung devices. We’ll also go through some of the features you can rely on each one.

Home Up

Home Up is the first Good Lock module to install after downloading the software, as many Samsung enthusiasts would confirm. It serves as the standard customization option for Galaxy users in many respects. The five groups of settings found in Home Up are Home screen, Folder, Back up and Restore, Share Manager, and Task Changer.

Hiding the app label from the home and applications screens creates a considerably cleaner appearance, and is one of its best features. For easier navigation, you can also alter the Recents page’s design.

You can even make folders on your home screen pop up instead of taking up the entire screen if you’re really picky about the user interface of your phone.

LockStar

LockStar focuses on personalizing your lock screen, as the name would imply. You may manually reposition system icons like the clock, music widget, and notification icons with this feature. You might wish to try any of the wallpapers that are included.

Additionally, the module enables you to quickly launch up to six different apps in place of the phone and camera apps that are the lock screen’s default shortcuts. But you may remove any or all of the system icons from the lock screen if you prefer a more modest appearance.

Wonderland

Wonderland is a fantastic choice if you want to give your screen a more vivid appearance. For your home screen and lock screen, you can design a unique live wallpaper with this feature. When the module is downloaded, it will show you a few presets to help you understand how it operates. You can modify those defaults or start fresh with new wallpaper.

Even better, you can stretch your static wallpaper across the entire screen to create a video wallpaper by overlaying a video on top of it. If you decide to utilize either one, make sure the movie isn’t too distracting when you’re trying to view your widgets and apps on the home screen.

Android 15 Beta 2.1

Google has released Android 15 Beta 2.1 update for Pixel 6, 6 Pro, 6a, Pixel 7, 7 Pro, 7a, Pixel 8, 8 Pro, 8a, Pixel Tablet, and Pixel Fold. This update primarily addresses an issue with the Private space feature.

Android 15 Beta 2.1 comes with the security patch for May 2024 and can be identified through version AP31.240426.023. It is a minor update with a size of around 11-12MB.

The main fix in this update corrects an issue where initially creating a Private space caused the removal of app icons from the Home screen. With this update, the process of setting up a Private space will no longer affect the Home screen’s organization.

Google has also shared some tips on how to manage the Private space. For instance, if you can’t recall how to access a hidden Private space, simply search for ‘Private Space’ in the search bar.

Moreover, if you forget the unlock method for Private space, it can be deleted from the reset options in the device settings. Apps can also be installed in Private space by long-pressing the app icon and selecting the ‘Install in private’ option.

One UI 7 (Android 15) to boost Galaxy phone battery with 3 extra hours of standby

Published

Android 15 3 hours battery standby

Google’s Android 15 is ready to enhance user experience with its significant battery life enhancement. Announced at Google I/O 2024, the Android 15 update promises up to 3 additional hours of standby battery time on some devices. This enhancement is based on the faster activation of doze mode, a power-saving Android feature.

Doze mode has been part of Android since version 6.0, and with Android 15, devices will enter this mode 50% quicker than before. This change means that phones will use less power when they’re not being used for longer battery life.

Although Wear OS 5 based on Android 14 will also benefit from related battery optimizations. Users can expect these enhancements in the Wear OS 6 update. In addition, One UI 7 based on Android 15 is also expected to boost Galaxy phone battery with 3 additional hours of standby.

According to AndroidAuthority, the VP of Engineering of the Android Platform, Dave Burke said, “For Android 15, we’ve sped up the time to doze (doze is when we go into a quiesce state) by 50%. So we get into doze 50% faster, and the result is on some devices we tested up to 3 hours longer standby power. And that’s sort of a general improvement in 15 that applies to all devices.”

Google aims to enhance Android’s core features to ensure all devices upgrading to Android 15 will enjoy 3 hours longer standby battery power feature.

As we highly rely on our devices, Google’s focus on extending battery life is a remarkable development. With Android 15, Google is not just adding new features but also ensuring that the devices are more efficient and reliable.

Android 15 Wear OS passkeys

Google is enhancing its security features with the introduction of Passkeys in Android 15 and Wear OS 5 through Gboard. This integration is expected to offer a more efficient and secure user experience.

The new feature will simplify the sign-in process to a single tap, replacing the previous method that required multiple steps. It displays all necessary information at once to make it more efficient for users with several accounts.

The latest version of Credential Manager on Android 15 will include this feature. Additionally, Gboard’s Autofill function will now suggest Credential Manager results, helping in a smoother sign-in process.

Credential Manager will also be available on Wear OS 5, which allows users to log in to apps on their smartwatches using passwords, Passkeys, or Google sign-in. This aims to provide a login experience similar to that on smartphones.

Google’s plans to integrate Passkeys into Gboard for Android 15 and Wear OS 5 were showcased at I/O 2024. This integration is set to be released later this year.
